The Binghamton Mets have placed number one prospect Zack Wheeler on the seven-day D.L. with a fingernail problem. The injury just needs a little time to heal and is not considered serious. Hah! Made you look! (click photo to embiggen)
There is no doubt that one of the weakest aspects of the 2012 Mets so far has been the bullpen. The Mets bullpen ERA is second to last in the National League at 5.04. Their bullpen’s WHIP is at 1.51, good for 14th place in the league. The Met bullpen this year is also fourth in the National League in giving up hits, and also fourth in giving up HR’s. So rather than scratch our […]
(click any photo to embiggen) Last week I published the first half of the MMO Exclusive interview I conducted with Buffalo Bisons manager Wally Backman. Wally was kind enough to sit down and answer some questions about his current team. He was very candid about which of his AAA players he feels, are working themselves into consideration for big league time with the Mets this season. At times while talking to Wally about managing his […]
Petey Shoots Top Prospect Matt Harvey… With His Camera, Silly… Our own Petey Pete was on assignment this week covering the Buffalo Bisons on the road in Lehigh Valley as they took on the Iron Pigs. One of his many great moments included watching Matt Harvey toss an absolute gem… Well, I’ll just let him tell you all about it… JD Sitting behind home plate on Wednesday and watching Matt Harvey deal, at 10:45am, I […]
I was standing in the Bison’s clubhouse talking to my buddy Dylan Owen. Dylan isn’t just a very talented RHP, he can hit too, and he happens to be a really nice guy. I was telling him, I had watched Monday night’s game on the internet, and when I saw him hit his historic home run, I was half-expecting him to go into a Carlton Fisk hop, waving his arms for the ball to stay […]
Ok, I’ve reached into the Ask Petey mailbag, but since I was tightly gripping a Labatt’s Blue, I only managed to pull out two questions. Oh well, I’ll try to do better next time. Or I could make up a few questions from imaginary readers….hmmmm maybe I will. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Petey: Our first Mets minor league mailbag question comes from little Timmy in Binghamton, NY. Lil’ Timmy asks: Timmy: Hey yo […]
It’s 8:00 AM in the beautiful Lehigh Valley. I just got to the ballpark after enjoying a delicious continental breakfast at the Super 8. Grounds in my coffee? Who cares? We got morning minor league baseball on tap, and the Bisons are throwing Matt Harvey today, and I’ll be sitting right behind homeplate. First pitch: 10:30 AM, I need more coffee, hold the grounds. Yesterday I was standing in the Bisons clubhouse before the game telling […]
Over the last two weeks I have seen my fill of criticism about Jeurys Familia. For some reason it seems as if Mets fans and bloggers want this guy to fail. Either that, or they are just trying to make themselves look smart by pointing out his short-comings, and predicting limited success for him as a major league prospect. The negative sooth-sayers are predicting at-best that Family will have to be moved to the bullpen, […]
Thoughts from Joe D. – I wanted to revisit this post Pete wrote a week ago because I believe the conversation has gained some relevancy now. Since the day Pete made the comparison to Jim Edmonds, I’m seeing that defensive comparison popping up in many circles in the last 48 hours. What Pete said about not needing to have speed as a primary attribute to play a great center field, has been on full display in […]
